Man Up Now Capsules: Consumer Warning - Undeclared Drug Ingredient

Audience: Consumer

ISSUE: FDA warned consumers not to use Man Up Now capsules, marketed as a dietary supplement for sexual enhancement, because FDA analysis determined that the product contains sulfoaildenafil, a chemical similar to sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra. Like sildenafil, this chemical may interact with prescription drugs such as nitrates, including nitroglycerin, and cause dangerously low blood pressure.

BACKGROUND: Man Up Now, distributed by Synergy Distribution LLC, is sold on Internet sites, online marketplaces, and possibly in retail outlets in single, double, and triple blister packs, and in six-, 12-, and 30-count capsule bottles.

RECOMMENDATION: Consumers who have Man Up Now capsules should stop using them immediately.

Healthcare professionals and patients are encouraged to report adverse events or side effects related to the use of these products to the FDA's MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program:
